The Toshiba Excite 7.7 is Toshiba’s first tablet with an AMOLED display. The tablet has a 7.7 inch, 1280 x 800 pixel Gorilla Glass display, an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and Android 4.0 operating system.
It has 1GB of RAM and will be available with 16GB or 32GB of storage when it ships in June.
Unfortunately, AMOLED displays don’t come cheap, which is why the Excite 7.7 will have a starting price of $499.99 — or about $50 more than the base price for the company’s new 10 inch tablet.
The 32GB model will run $579.99.
The Toshiba Excite 7.7 has 2MP front-facing camera an da 5MP rear camera, microUSB and microSD card slots, and stereo speakers.
It measures 0.3 inches thick and weighs 0.84 pounds. Toshiba imagines customers gravitating toward this model for reading eBooks, playing games, watching videos and other activities. But those who want a larger display can look to the company’s 10 inch or 13.3 inch Android tablets.
The larger models may not have the same AMOLED display as the Excite 7.7, but they do have micro HDMI ports and full-sized SD card slots. The Toshiba Excite 13 also has a high resolution 1600 x 900 pixel display.
